The launch of SES-10 in March 2017 was a big milestone for SpaceX, which has been working toward reusable rockets for 15 years before successfully launching a recovered first-stage rocket.
The rocket will carry the SES-12 satellite to orbit for the Luxembourg-based telecom company SES.
The launch was originally scheduled for early Wednesday morning, and then postponed again to early Friday.
SES-12 is capable of broadcasting and providing broadband data services focused on the high-growth Asia-Pacific region. The booster then came back to Earth for a pinpoint landing shortly after that liftoff, but won't do this for the SES-12 mission.
The rocket lifted off at 12:45 a.m. and is the second flight for the launcher's first stage, Space.com reports.
About 32 minutes later, the Falcon 9's upper stage deployed the Airbus-built SES 12 telecom payload into a "supersynchronous" transfer orbit stretching more than 36,000 miles (58,000 kilometers) above Earth.
SpaceX has also tried several times to snatch Falcon 9 nose cones out of the sky with a net-equipped boat called Mr. Steven, so that these $6 million pieces of equipment can be reused.
SpaceX has since upgraded its Falcon 9 rocket, so it did not attempt a recovery effort of the booster this time.
